No Carb Spinach Bread

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by yooper

A low carber's dream come true! I saw this on the "Today" show and was intrigued. This came from the "Taste of Home" website. I haven't made this yet, but definitely plan too! I'm guessing this is more like a polenta than a bread. Note cook time and servings are for the smaller version, not the loaf.

I'm sorry, Yooper -- I *really* wanted to like this 'cause I sure miss my bread on the low-carb routine. But I found this to have a texture like a rubbery quiche, and it really just wasn't great. I know you hadn't made it when you posted, so I wanted to let you know. I ended up buttering the pieces lightly, then dredging them in Parmesan and grilling them on the George Foreman. That was fairly tasty. I will probably top the next couple slices with a little marinara and mozzarella and put them under the broiler. Thanks for posting it, it was sure worth a try.
